On a beautiful summer day I took my husband and kids to visit the
Hanover Junction Railway Station in Pennsylvania.
This historic train station has been restored to its former glory, as it should have been.
You see, this station is a huge part of history and was added to
the National Register of Historic Places in 1983.
President Lincoln actually traveled through here and was believed to have stopped
and had his picture taken back in 1863 on his way to and from the
dedication ceremony at Gettysburg National Cemetery.
You can see the historical picture here.
If you look to the right of the train, on the platform,
you can see what many say is President Lincoln himself.
Me? I am fascinated by the lady's skirt in the far right background.
She could parachute out of an airplane and float down safely with that thing!
This train station now houses a small museum detailing the history of the area
and of the building.
It also has restrooms that serve the York Heritage Rail Trail for
bikers, walkers, runners, and horse back riders.
In addition, it also is now the northern stop of the Steam Into History
York #17 steam train ride.
Sharing today with Tuesday Muse!
Have a wonderful day.
